Hi,

Looking for some general advise as I'm preparing to purchase a new gaming laptop for the road. Ultra thin computing is the significant need. I'm getting rid of an old Sager NP9170 which has I've had since 2012 - really has been a replacement desktop.

I'm open to other considerations outside of the Aorus X7 and the MSI GS73 but these are the two I've narrowed it down to and there's about a $600 price differential in what I'm looking at trying to justify whether it's worth going for the Aorus.

Any advise is appreciated - specs for both as I've created them are below..
